Recovering from the scorching summer days, we welcome the monsoon with a sigh of relief and gratitude. While on one hand we enjoy the frigid breeze and subdued weather, on the other hand, the questions about every monsoon season still remain the same. The daily self-interrogation of what’s in fashion and how to incorporate it in monsoon fashion trends continues to linger at the back of the mind.
Well, not anymore. Putting an end to the fuss, we bring you a list of trend essentials to spruce up your rainy day attire. So here is your complete style guide for Monsoon Fashion Trends 2016.
Contrasting the sky’s grey tones with bright hues and peppy colors will surely brighten up the monsoon atmosphere. Highlighting an accentuated color scheme by placing bright shaded ensembles against the neutral hued background, you can create an enchanting play of contrasts.
Pleasing shades of mint green and teal set a mellow appeal of minimalism. Peppy colors of macaroon like lilac, peach, dusty orange and blue can be used to add a cheery appeal. Sumptuous shades of fuchsia, eggplant and swamp green will complement the alluring aura of blooming flora in the surroundings.
Restricting yourself from flaunting your flair for fashion behind those baggy drab clothes in the monsoon is not a coercion anymore. Instead, swing to the rhythm of the gushing monsoon winds with breezy silhouettes.
Flowing A-line knee length dresses and skirts, layered spaghetti dresses, short H-line shift dresses and sheer balloon tops will keep you in both fashion as well as your comfort zone. Pairing spaghetti tops with comfortable cotton cardigans, you can create volume in your ensemble. A chic umbrella dress is a closet essential to uphold your trend quotient in the dreary days.
Slashing down the dearth of cheery ensembles, fill your closet with striking patterns and peppy surface ornamentation’s. With delicate embroidered details and dainty embellishments, embody your appearance with a flamboyance in your personality.
Enchanting floral prints inspired from the blooming flora of the season will help you make a beguiling appearance. Apparels with Aztec prints and tie-die patterns can lend a bohemian look to your closet.
It’s time to neatly wrap your pointy heels and stack them in the cupboard. The wet streets are no more a safe place to stroll on with those. But this doesn’t restrain you from highlighting your shoe fetish.
All you need is to add some trendy pair of boots in neutral shades to complement your chic attire. The flat ankle booties are stylish and a savior on a party night in a gloomy weather. A simple and chic pair of flat sandals with tie-up details completes your fashionable appearance in an instant.
Party night, otherwise a bliss, is usually a stress on a rainy day. Play your fashion cards by donning a convenient shift dress with a shimmery jacket and boots. Adorning it with the minimal bling of a statement neck piece will complete your look.
A chic pair of lacy shorts donned with a strappy top redefines trend combined with comfort quotient. A set of golden accessories and solid-shaded footwear will keep with your classy appeal.
Getting drenched in the rains wearing a white sari, which happens to be a common Bollywood monsoon fashion, is surely not a convenient idea. But this doesn’t mean you discard saris from your monsoon fashion list.
Adapt to the contemporary and flexible style of wearing a sari. You don’t have to spend your time pondering ‘How to wear different types of sarees?’ All you need to do is replace the traditional concept of wearing a petticoat with a trouser, and a blouse with a crop top or a t-shirt. Your sassy and comfortable pant-style sari is right there to cast the spotlight on you.
